Whilst most people might think about trying to ‘break out’ of a police station, few creatures would try and break into one.
But that is exactly what a Muntjac Deer tried to late on Saturday night.
RSPCA Inspectors were called in to try and help free the deer from a gate that leads onto the grounds of the building that the deer had misjudged as it tried to squeeze through the bars.
After some good old fashioned ‘wrangling’ by RSPCA Inspectors, the deer was freed having been looked after by police staff until the RSPCA arrived.
A tweet shared by Ipswich Central Police said:
‘Thanks to the RSPCA for turning up early this morning to help catch and release a Muntjac deer after it tried to get in the Ipswich central police station and got stuck in the gate’.
They also confirmed that they had ‘Noeyedeer how it got stuck in the gate’.
After being checked out by animal welfare staff, the animal was released back into the wild after being given ‘words of advice’ in relation to its blatant attempt at trying to break into police property.
